Kristen Stewart made big beauty news when she was named the face of Balenciaga’s newest fragrance, Florabotanica, and now fans can finally get a look at the gorgeous ad campaign.

During an interview with WWD, Stewart admitted she was unsure about how she should pose for the photos. “When I first stood there, I was like, ‘OK, do you want me to show the curves of the dress? Do you want me to stand like this? Like that?’ And they were like, ‘Just be comfortable.'”

Along with approving of the futuristic floral ad (shot by famed photographer Steven Meisel), she’s also 100 percent happy with the fragrance.

“There is something natural about it,” the On The Road actress explained. “It’s very alive. I think that as a young person wearing it — considering that I’ve never worn a scent — it kind of puts you on this level of, like, ‘Whoa, check me out.'”

The star also admitted that she was rather nervous to initially smell it. “I’m very lucky that I like the fragrance, because I would have done anything with [Balenciaga designer Nicolas Ghesquière],”she revealed. “And I’m a terrible liar.”

Florabotanica features notes of vetiver, amber and caladium-leaf accord, a (hybrid) rose, carnation and mint accord and is set to be released in September. Tell us: What do you think of the ad?

Kristen Stewart once again stuns us!! She is truly amazing and beautiful with such unique talent. One of a kind gal…. xoxo

Darcy on

I’m so getting the fragrance when it comes out . Love Kristen Stewart!!!

jojo on

there is a lot going on in the ad, and kristen is very pretty but that isn’t her best look.

crmomof2 on

I am definitely going to purchase that fragrance!

Morri on

I feel like they could have incorporated Kristen’s love for twitching and blinking but I am glad to see that the stone face expression remains intact!

K on

I do love her and think she’s gorgeous, but I HATE this add. She looks like Edward Scissorhands. So weird…

Victoria King on

Congratulations Kristen. I am so proud of you!!~

lkw11 on

Morri: your hateful comments say more about you than Kristen. I will pray for your cold dead heart.

Maldwyn Dobbs on

I find i am very fascinated by Kristen Stewart. I find that i enjoy her performances on the screen and i’m quite fascinated by the way her mind works. Kristen is a rare woman who as far i can see has beauty, brains, common-sense and from this article must smell gorgeous.

ana on

congrats kristen we love it your style sweet fragrance

Chloe on

She look like Edward Scissorhands!!!

And she says she is comfortable! Of course she is! She is not smiling… she look a little miserable, as always.

I like Kristen Stewart, but I don’t think she looks good in this ad. The only thing that ad has is a whole lot of confusing going on.

The ads are not what we are used to seeing: selling sex. These ads looks artistic with a touch of primitive art. Some of the flowers look pretty and common while others look exotic and kind of dangerous. Kristen looks fresh like she just took a shower and got dressed, very pretty, and her body language says I am determined to seize the day for whatever it may bring and enjoy it. Definitively different. I like the bottle cap. There could have been a bit more connection between Kristen and the bottle. It just so happens that I am in the mood for a new fragance so I will try it.

None of Your Busniess on

I wouldn’t go as far to say kristen’s Perfume ad is stunning, not really. I think we’ve all seen other celebs who look better and are in better ads.

Just Me on

I really like Kristen but I don’t think this is the best picture I’ve ever seen of her. Nice concept for the ad though.

Julia on

What? She looks like a corpse.

Rose on

To me, the ad is well balanced. Kristen, her dress, the flowers and the bottle are getting equal attention. In most perfume ads it is usually the face of the model that gets all the attention. I could look at this ad for a while to notice the shapes and colors. I like it.

eyeliketodothat on

looks like once again she needs to wash her hair and go out side and get little sun

rhonda on

laughing my ass of not a good liar and actress!!!! I agree she is very beautiful and very private but her acting is as interesting as watching grass grow.

Commentor on

boring

catca on

I get what they’re trying to do artistically by combining a hard edge look on Kristen with soft florals but I don’t think it works. I hate this ad. I also think Kristen has beautiful bone structure and has looked gorgeous in several magazine layouts, but this is not her best look. As an aside, why would anyone buy a fragrance because of who it hires to be its face? Fragrances smell different on everyone – try it on and see how it smells on you to decide whether you want to buy it not.

Mya on

Stuns??! Are you kidding me? She looks like a pasty mannequin. People magazine has low standards in what it considers beauty.

sookie on

She ruins the dress standing like that and her hair is a mess.

Misty on

Too busy – too much going on. The ad’s not directed at my age group though, but I can see it being something found in Cosmo. Kristen Stewart’s appeal mystifies me – I just can’t see what other people find fascinating about her.

Kim on

Does this young woman EVER smile?

christa on

Too busy.

Daia S. on

Sucks!

Hairpie on

It smells like cat piss. Anything for a buck, though.

Kat on

Thank you photographer and Kristen Stewart for not going for the sexy, sultry look…. I am so bored with that it’s way over-done these days! It’s so refreshing to see a beautiful woman photographed standing tall, bold, regal even. Love it!

Love Kristin, the post looks like she forgot to comb or brush her hair….ugh

M. Royston on

The ad doesn’t do anything for me. I think the dress and pose look totally out of place. Kirsten Stewart is an average looking gal, and average actress, who just happened to land a place in a popular movie. Nothing about her achievements to date would compel me to buy a perfume that she advocates.

bobi on

Where is Morticia?

Cora on

WTF? This ad is a hot mess and of course Kristen looks messy and constipated. Oh and before her worshipers try to say I’m jealous. Er, no. The only thing that I might be jealous of is her bank account, but that could be said about many actors.

jess on

I can see why the head line says that she stuns in the the add. She looks as if she is stunned lol.

Pyrochic on

I am sorry to say. But this add looks like someone’s first attempt at photoshop and just placed a bunch of pictures into one place. It is the worse perfume add I have ever seen.

Megsmom on

Love her but that is not a stunning picture of her. I have seen absolutely beautiful pics of her, but that seriously is not one of them.

Marie on

She smelled it before she endorsed it?
That doesn’t exactly make me want to rush out and buy it.

Sylvia on

I love Kristen Stewart. She’s such a beautiful young woman and looks stunning in this ad. I’ll definitely be buying this fragrance when it comes out!

e on

I think the design is pretty cool and different. I actually really like it. As always Kristen Stewart brings out tons of response both positive and negative. She never disappoints in that way and that’s what brands want from her. Anything Kristen related never flies under the radar which is always a positive for her.

FT on

She looks stunned, but what else is new.

jackie2830 on

True, she doesn’t smile very much……yet there’s something that’s so hauntingly beautiful about this girl….very different!

Cindi on

Her comments make it sound like the fragrance is for just “young people” which is unfortunate.

bliss26 on

Kristen Stewart is annoying, a horrible actress (with the one exception being her performance in The Runaways), completely awkward, and totally unattractive by Hollywood standards. I don’t get it.

bliss26 on

Kristen Stewart is annoying, a horrible actress with the only exception being her performance in The Runaways, not attractive at all by Hollywood standards, and completely awkward in a bad way. I don’t get it.

Nameless on

I think Stewart is pretty and I don’t have some repulsion against her. I don’t think this ad makes her look stunning, however. In fact, I don’t like her in it at all.

bliss26 on

She also tries too hard to look like she doesn’t care about her looks etc. which is completely lame. It’s like being a conformist in your non-conformity. If she didn’t care, she wouldn’t be famous. Also, you can’t be the cool, non-conformist, stoner chick and be in those horrible teeny bopper Twilight movies. She sucks.

Jennifer Rice on

Is that supposed to be a sexy photo? Falls pretty short if you ask me. That expression, oh my. I can’t believe people actually LIKE HER. I mean as a person I am sure she is wonderful, but as an actress, if you ask me, I’ll come right out and say she leaves alot to be desired.

Steven on

She looks like a model … and by that I mean she has the same expressionless face and dead-behind-the-eyes stare.

Lucy on

I’m not generally a Kristen Stewart fan, but this does her no favors. The ad is chaotic, the dress fabric doesn’t flatter her skin tone, the photo touch-ups emphasize how skinny her arms and legs are and make her hips look big and round, etc. Then there’s her sullen and unkempt appearance…
This ad wouldn’t make me want to go check out the fragrance.

This young lady has really grown up before our eyes & is really beautiful

I do not love that ad….I love Kristen Stewart but she looks more lovely when she smiles….that ad is horrid!

She ‘stuns’ alright! I’m stunned that anyone would find this ad or her look in this add ‘ahmazing’. Society REALLY does favor mediocrity!

Well, she looks pasty white and its definitely not her best look. But, hey, she even off screen she is completely and totally expressionless. She really does look kind of like Edward Scissorhands, just minus the sweet, endearing personality and all.

Her hair & face remind me of Edward Scissorhands.

Natalie Geary on

This girl looks like she has chronic B.O. She also looks confused amongst that mess of an ad campaign. I just don’t get this “actress” whose range of emotion goes from pout to constipated. That is it. Sheez!

Cher630 on

How is Kristen Stewart a “talented” actress is she only shows one facial expression…if you can even call it an “expression.” It’s more like a dead, blank stare. Does she ever smile? I think Balenciaga could have picked an actress that shows a better range of emotion or one that is actually pretty.

Topaz on

She seems a little out of place in the ad, at least with the pose she has. It’s like they just superimposed an image of her in a floral background.

Guest on

She’s not ‘stunning,’ but she definitely looks stunned.

brutallyhonest on

C’mon people – let’s be real. She only “stuns” because she looks like a ghoul here. A corpse. A dead woman. If she is such a good actress, then ACT sexy and alluring and fierce like the brand she’s representing!

jenniferelsdonlarson on

Would someone PLEASE find a way to make this girl have a facial expression. Jeez, smiling doesn’t hurt, I swear… Just try it..

Gennifer Bainbridge on

Can’t say I like the ad at all. Nothing to do with KS, the ad is just too cluttered. It’s hard to know where to look and I wouldn’t think that the seller would like the fact that the last place your eye is drawn to is the actual picture of the product. They pay good advertising dollars to emphasize the product the celeb is promoting.
